Flourishes Friday–Sweet Days Of Summer

Sweet Days of Summer Graphic
I’m  back today with the last set in Flourishes August release. Another sweet, sweet set from Lauren Pope, a follow up to last year’s Kids Play. I know I said I’m ready for Fall—and I AM, but I thought I’d give Summer one last shout out ;-)

Love these summery papers from Bo Bunny’s Barefoot and Bliss so I took my cue from them. I stamped the image on
Classic White card stock with Memento Danube Blue ink and outlined it with pale blue green Copic markers in BG0000 and BG000. I matted it with more white and stitched around it. Some orange baker’s twine ties on the adorable sentiment, cut out with my Grand Calibur and a Standard Circle Nestabilities die, used as a tag. I added some clear Dew Drops to the image panel and the sentiment tag to simulate drops of water.

Don’t forget the Shades Of Sunset Challenge is still going on on the Flourishes blog. You have a chance to win the entire August release if you play along. This month we have not three, but FOUR new stamp sets to share! Deadline is TONIGHT at 5pm so what are you waiting for?
